Greece says euro zone countries agree aid plan

Euro zone countries have agreed to an aid plan for Greece, a spokesman for the Greek government said on Thursday.

"The plan meets our requirements fully ... we agree," George Petalotis told reporters in Brussels.

"There is a very good plan which will be announced shortly," he added. "We consider it to be a message of stability and it will have a positive impact on the Greek economy."

Asked if all euro zone countries were ready to sign up to the agreement, Petalotis said: "Yes, they have agreed."

He said French President Nicolas Sarkozy, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet, Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou and EU president Herman Van Rompuy had met to iron out details of the deal.

"It (the plan) will include the participation of euro zone countries and the IMF to a smaller degree," Petalotis said.
